From what I have read on other forums and from press releases, it sounds like devices that had HDMI 2.0 Version B (Like last year's Onkyos 636, 737, etc.) run at a max bandwidth of 10.2 gbps. A...

I have owned this TV for three years now, and I still think it holds it's own and even surpasses many of the current LEDs out there. Even the new lg oled is only a bit better in my opinion.
